37. Well I can't fault them for trying to make things better...
these kids apparently were hurt by the costumes somehow, and decided to start this campaign. So, although I don't get it, I have to give them credit for trying to do what they think is right (considering they're not trying to hurt anyone, like rightwingers do when they think they're doing something good).
